VCCLCompilerTool.StringPooling Property 

Gets or sets a value indicating whether to enable read-only string pooling for generating smaller compiled code. StringPooling exposes the functionality of the compiler's /GF option.

Namespace: Microsoft.VisualStudio.VCProjectEngine
Assembly: Microsoft.VisualStudio.VCProjectEngine (in microsoft.visualstudio.vcprojectengine.dll)

property bool StringPooling {
	bool get ();
	void set ([InAttribute] bool optSetting);
/** @property */
boolean get_StringPooling ()

/** @property */
void set_StringPooling (/** @attribute InAttribute() */ boolean optSetting)

function get StringPooling () : boolean

function set StringPooling (optSetting : boolean)

Property Value

true if read-only string pooling for generating smaller compiled code is enabled; otherwise, false.

See Examples for Project Model Extensibility for information about how to compile and run this example.

The following example modifies the StringPooling property in the integrated development environment (IDE):
